“When we all commit to eradicating adverse childhood experiences, we’ll end this never-ending trauma.” Anna, Age Eight
Make safe kids, successful students and resilient families your city's #1 priority.
End adverse childhood experiences, child maltreatment and family trauma with our groundbreaking program.
We’re implementing a data-driven process to prevent adverse childhood experiences.
Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) include growing up in households where adults misuse substances, are threatening or violent, have untreated mental health challenges, are abusive physically, emotionally and sexually, are neglectful of meeting children’s basic needs, are dissolving marriages or are engaged in activities leading to incarceration. Resilience Leaders prevents the root causes of ACEs through the collaborative and data-driven process of continuous quality improvement (CQI).
Making every child a priority.
Resilience Leaders creates a county system of safety and care shown to prevent family trauma. We bring together agency, school board, college, city and county leadership to ensure every family has access to ten vital services:
Five Survival Services “The basics”
Behavioral health care
Five Services that Support Families Thriving
Early Childhood Learning Programs
Resilience Leaders engages all stakeholders. Our goal is to strengthen community systems and lifelong learning to create:
FAMILY-FRIENDLY CITY THE KEY PILLARS OF ACE PREVENTION
"The biggest question is this: Do we collectively want to solve the epidemic of trauma, or do we keep asking families to solve this problem on their own?" — from Anna, Age Eight: The data-driven prevention of childhood trauma and maltreatment
Resilience Leaders promotes a cross-sector process to prevent and treat ACEs. Our groundbreaking program supports the development of projects that improve ten interconnected family-focused service sectors shown to create a city where families, schools and communities thrive.
